A non-member in the UK wishes to sell some parts

Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

Thank you gentlemen, I saw a recent post by Jon Pegler, ( 7-23-2018) where he cites that Ducati engine #'s starting with 114,115,116 , are Spanish built motors.

Re: Prices in Australia

In my non-professional opinion the price is currently a little on the high side for today's market, at least for now (2018) as you might still be able to get a rough condition round case 750 GT rider at that price.

250 narrowcase rear axle orientation info needed

Re: Gray Cables?

Re: Shopping for front and rear tires

Does anyone know of a US distributor for ME22 tires?

I know they won't break in shipment, but the expense of the shipping could be as much as the tires.
